2017 Dodgers review: Rob Segedin

New, 20 comments
MLB: San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Rob Segedin‘s second season with the Dodgers was sidelined by a pair of injuries.

What went right

During the World Baseball Classic Segedin was 3-for-13 with a home run, a double and three walks, hitting .231/.375/.538 for Italy.

“It puts you in a high-intensity, playoff-like atmosphere where every single pitch matters, and any game could be decided by any small event,” Segedin said. “It was truly one of the best experiences I've had in all of baseball.”

Segedin had 11 extra-base hits in his 25 games in Triple-A — seven doubles and four home runs — hitting .320/.347/.515 with 15 RBI.

What went wrong

Segedin missed a whopping 102 games over four months while dealing with multiple injuries. He was placed on the disabled list in April with a right big toe strain but then missed more time after suffering a right wrist injury during rehab in May that required surgery to remove bone spurs.

The right-handed Segedin was 8-for-31 against left-handers between the majors and minors, hitting .258/.324/.355, albeit in very limited duty.
